Utah man charged for sunbathing nude in his yard

Associated Press 3:25 p.m. MST December 4, 2014

SALT LAKE CITY — A judge is issuing an arrest warrant for a 77-year-old Utah man who police say was sunbathing nude in his backyard next to a church parking lot.

Court records show the $5,000 cash-only warrant was issued Tuesday after Myron Lee Kipp failed to show up at a court hearing in his lewdness case.

The Farmington man has pleaded not guilty to seven misdemeanor counts of lewdness, four involving a child.

Defense attorney William Albright didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.

Police say Kipp's neighbors reported he was sunbathing nude in his backyard March 5. His yard has a chain-link fence with no privacy slats.

Police say several parents said their children could see him, but Kipp told an officer he could do want he wanted on his property.
